Sample text

If all we mean by “philosophy of science” is “method of science,” then Leibniz, like Aristotle, certainly had that. But since Leibniz has no conception of science as an enterprise distinct from philosophy, to speak of his philosophy of science cannot help us to make any sense of his understanding of the disciplinary division of labor. ” If Leibniz felt constrained by any disciplinary boundaries, these were not the ones subsequently erected by academic philosophers. Blood, organs, INTRODUCTION 21 food, spermatozoa: these, too, were of interest to Leibniz qua philosopher, and they were directly implicated, as I will show, in what today we take to be his deepest philosophical concerns.

Both the academies Leibniz would later help to establish in Berlin and St. Petersburg, as well as the medical institutions he would propose throughout his life, are in important ways inspired by the organization of religious orders. In a remarkable text titled “Bedenken von Aufrichtung einer Akademie oder Societät [Thoughts on the Establishment of an Academy or a Society],” dated to 1671 in view of its great lexical overlap with the Directiones ad rem medicam pertinentes of the same year, Leibniz reveals both the fundamentally political, and national, character of his interest in medicine, as well as the very broad scope of what he takes medicine to be: In medicine itself it must be admitted that, as the marvellous discoveries of Asellius,11 Acquapendente, Pecquet, Bartholin, Rudbeck,12 Harvey, Lower, 28 CHAPTER 1 Dionysius13 and others reveal, nowhere is practical medicine flourishing more so than in Germany, as all of those well know who come into contact with foreign doctors, pharmacists, and surgeons.

Leibniz also believes that the condition of the hair, presumably its texture and color, can tell us a good deal about a person’s constitution and health. Traditional forms of reading from external signs, such as the shape of the nose, are of course rejected, as it is only what truly emerges from within, what is pushed out from the invisible part of the body and becomes visible, that is diagnostically useful. Physiognomy in contrast, as traditionally practiced, lacks any sufficient reason: “From the figure of the hair of a man all sorts of useful conclusions may be drawn with certainty.
